What is a Land Acknowledgement Statement?
A Land Acknowledgement is a formal statement that recognizes the unique and enduring relationship that exists between Indigenous Peoples and their traditional territories (Honor Native Land Guide Resource (insert citation)). While an acknowledgement alone is a small gesture, through its continued use and in a combination with a meaningful action plan, it can be an educational tool that helps repair and build new relationships, offering recognition and respect, while highlighting new perspectives.
